Extra: Zoom Mode or Standard Mode?
One of the 1st decisions you will have to make about your new iPhone 6 is whether you want it to run in "Zoomed" mode or "Standard" mode. What are they exactly?
Standard mode: displays text and application icons at the exact same size as they were displayed on the smaller 4 inch screen of the iPhone 5 and 5s (and even the older 3.5" screens of the the other iPhone 4s and older models).
Zoom mode: In this mode iOS increases the size of the text and the application icons making icons a little easier to touch with your fingers on the screen and text a little bit easier to read.
